Hi guys,

A few steps before my first and long desired Panerai I still have doubts between a 233 or a 355.
I was almost decided for a 233, but I have a small wrist for a 44 mmm and fear that I will end not using it for that reason.
Saw the pam 355 and fell in love shortly after.
So I'm in a middle of a beautiful dilemma.
Any experience with any of these models in terms of reliability and stuff will be much appreciated.
Thanks a lot,
Alejo

I would never buy a watch w/o trying it on first. Put both on your wrist and see what you feel.

My two yen.

PS Personally, I don't think you could go wrong with either one!

Both look fantastic, but personally I really love the look of the 233.

GL and enjoy either way

My 233 sits perfectly on my 7" wrist. Can provide wrist shot for reference if needed.

Not too sure what movement in the 355 but the p.2002 in 233 is very very reliable.
